Todd Burrier

Have I written about him yet? I certainly should have. One of my prime mentors who inspires me almost daily! A few years ago, I translated for a daylong seminar with Todd Burrier in Vienna. This time, I had the privilege to just be a part of the audience. As we arrived he was in the corridor meeting and greeting the incoming visitors. When you hear his vlogs, you know, that is Todd, through and through. He thanks YOU for being allowed to serve you! Is that leadership with heart? I do remember writing about this! It just inspires me so much. I did buy the English version of his book from Amazon, after purchasing the German one for him to sign, which I gave to Josef.
